Abstract: These data sets include measurements of total carbon (TC), total
organic carbon (TOC), total nitrogen (N) and total sulphur (S) made on
whole rock samples collected as part of the Cape Roberts Project. The
analytical methods used are described in the references included in
this DIF.

- Downhole temperature and radiogenic heat production in McMurdo Sound
and Transantarctic Mountains;
- Results of whole-rock organic geochemical analyses of the CRP-3 core
(C-, N-, S-analyses);
- Mineralogy of sediments from CRP-3 as revealed by X-ray diffraction;
- Variation in smectite content and crystallinity in sediments from
